Nature walks from Fitzroy Falls
With its rainforest gullies, wildflowers, colourful parrots and rosellas, and many other native animals, Morton National Park is the main attraction at Fitzroy Falls. The boardwalk along the creek, through restored native bushland, takes you to a lookout at the top of the Falls (about 100 m).
About Fitzroy Falls
This small village is best known for the waterfall that plunges spectacularly into the thick eucalypt forests of the valley beneath the escarpment. It is one of many waterfalls in Morton National Park. Nearby Belmore Falls is equally dramatic and easy to access. In 1882, 4,000 acres were set aside as a reserve, forming the basis of the vast national park that exists today.
There are well cut paths and easy stairways, resting places and signs strategically placed to identify native fauna and flora. Go bushwalking along the escarpment - the nearest trail is a 1.6-km round trip to a lookout where you'll see the full glory of the falls. Find out more about bushwalks.
